Year-Round Activities

Horizons hopes to engage families and students throughout the school year with family and student activities. Horizons holds events with educational entertainment and plans future events such as a Saturday Academy or family reading nights. In November, 2013, Horizons invited students and families to the Lafayette County-Oxford Public Library for dinner and a storyteller performance. Parents also had the opportunity to give valuable feedback about their experience with the summer program. Each student took home a new book thanks to a generous donation by the Lafayette County Literacy Council.

Professional storytellers Rebecca Jernigan and Elaine Gelbard performed an interactive story using a combination of dance and drama.

Students and siblings colored and reunited with friends from the summer while Horizons staff gathered feedback from parents.
